5 stars The album with which King Crimson was reborn in 1981 after a seven year absence, this was a very influential release, as a generation of budding guitarists could not help but be astonished by the interplay and pure discipline of Belew and Fripp's precise guitar craftsmanship. The two compliment each other perfectly, Fripp's precise repetative lines provoding the horizon for Belew to twist and wrench sounds from his guitar which were just unbelievable at the time, and are still excellent. Tony Levin and Bill Bruford work together in such a tightly interlocking manner that they have become almost exemplar of a tight rock rythm section. A well balanced and memorable collection of pieces, with some of their best known pieces including Frame by Frame, Elephant Talk (in which Belew finds a screaming elephant among his bag of guitar sounds), and Thela Hun Ginjeet, along with more laid back atmospheric pieces such as The Sheltering Sky and Matte Kudasai. Arguably their best. The KC Collectors releases through DGM include a Live in Berkely '82 disc that contains nearly the entire Discipline, and is a great example of them live.
